11:33 am
>> welcome back. snow isn't your idea of fun we have ideas on what might change your mind. >> might. we ave found snow recipes that could make tasty treats. you could make what people in england call leather braves. it sounds liking this mt. south. if you heat up maple syrup in a pan to around 234 degrees and drizzle it in strips over packed snow because it cool so quickly it transforms the snow into a taffy like treat that can be put on a pop sickle -`treat. >> and kids if you are listening to this, do it with

in it so your dentist would appreciate you doing the science experiment. >> or just add kalula and it will kill anything in there. for adults. not kids. we have a lot of snow if you want to make one of these things. maybe a snow man though. i have not gotten one photographhfrom anyone at home. i know all of these kids are out of school today. so please, if you did build a snowman, send me a photograph. allens park 18 inches of snow. 16 in jenn see. tinytown had a little more than a foot. fort collins around 11-12 inches. westminster 9-12-inches. there are some locations that saw as little as four inches of snow. it is starting to disappear. doesn't mean it's gone and
11:36 am
completely gone later on this african. ww are starting to see it break apart which means it is not losing the momentum it had and that will continue through the afternoon. here's that statewide view. you can see the snow just spinning off to the east. the eastern plains ill continue to see some of the snow through the afternoon. mostly flurries for us across the i-25 door. in the high country it will continue. look at the niceeclearing we get and on to the eastern plains. as we move this forward, we will be dealing with clearer skies which will be nice. we will want the sunshine to dry off the terror -- they were cold today. early tomorrow morning we will very if you are heading up to
11:37 am
teens innthe high country. eagle 19. out of the eastern plains a little warmer. some mid 20s at burlington. it is going to be incredibly cold tomorrow morning. that will be a factor for anyone who walks to school orr work. highs today in the low 20s.. few locations will be a little warmer fort collins and greeley because you get that clearing. i don't knowwif you will notice that difference when you step outside between 24 and 27. tomorrow still ppetty chilly. we go from that 24-27. sunshine will make a big -`difference. if you are in the sun tomorrow, it will not feel too bad. thursday and friday, there is the beginning of our warmup. >> super bowl sunday. >> that is why it should be the bright spot. >> yes.
11:38 am
sunshine, we going to have dry roads by tomorrow as soon as we get some sunshine. a lot of the roads are turning wet right now. this is the map of all the roads that are closed down still on the eastern plains. it includes i-70, i-76 and many of those highways are still closed down and will be until we see the storm move out and get more plowing done on those roadways. take a look at c-d.o.t. cameras. this is what we are seeing right now as we take a look at the drive down at i-25 and founders parkway. it's turning more wet and sloppy which is really good news for us as we can get some of this snow like here in the denver tech center plowed off. we will see road improvements. look at highway 36 at federal. looking a little better for us on some of the side streets. many of them especially the neighborhood routesswill be really tough. you saw there along smith road and university where this young
11:39 am
you can see the black top here. jason gruenauer has been checking on some of the neighborhoods around washington park. what does it look like out there jason? >> reporter: if you can imagine trying to -- it's hard for me to walk. imagine trying to drive through this. this is the sii inches of powder they got here right on the edge of washington park. but the good news, denver public works has dispatched their residential plows. you can look up and down and see they are clear in these and the streets surrounding wash park. there is enough snow fell they put that into motion. that plan that they have when large amounts of snowfall make it easier for drivers. however, you are trying to pull out like this guy, it will be a little tough. you may have to dig your car out and as you head out, make sure you take it slow because it's hard to stop on this kind of pavement.
